interesting brake idea
has anyone ever thought about, looked into, or done this?

I am thinking about running separate cables to the rear e-brakes so I can have independent braking on the rear.. then I thought about taking it one step further, what if I relocate a disk e-brake to the front wheels and have 4- way independent braking?

You could use dune buggy brake levers on top of the normal parking brake lever so you wouldn't have to lose the functionality of it.

just a thought, wondered if anyone else had similar ideas or has actually built something like it.

let me know what you think

What would be the point of it... Also you could probably install brake line locks( for the front anyway) from the 1/4 mile crowd easier than your idea....I have seen jeeps spin around with I think what you are talking about but they also have twin sticks so they can go to front wheel drive only...

look up cutting brakes. its been done and a lot better then your idea. only really practical with a t-case that allows the axles to be engaged independently. this allows the rig to do a front or rear dig and make very tight turns on the trail.

That's what I thought irongrave... Is the braking system similar to the line locks on 1/4 mile cars to stop the roll?

ok, I will research more.
It was just a thought I had while re-building my rear brakes and replacing the parking brake cables.
